otterboxdefenderserieshtchd2kI know you all must be wondering how many more OtterBox Cases I have left to review and I can tell you that this is the last one I have to review for a while. I had to take a little bit of time off from reviewing products so I am trying to get back into the swing of things and caught up. Good news is I have 4 more reviews scheduled so stay tuned!  Today, however, I have the OtterBox Defender Series Case for the HTC HD2 International Device. The International version of the HTC HD2 is different than the T-mobile release of the HD2 so you need to make sure that you are ordering the right one. We started off the OtterBox Case Reviews with the Commuter Series for the HTC HD2 that you can read here: CLICK HERE. There is a pretty significant difference in the two cases. The Commuter Series is a less bulky case that has a polycarbonate back cover and silicone insert that slips over the device. OtterBox also supplies a Heavy Duty Screen Protector. The Defender Series Case by OtterBox is simply the Ultimate in device protection. Hence the name coined by OtterBox, The Defender Series. One look and I am confident you will agree, this is simply the toughest case money can buy for the HTC HD2.

So let’s just jump right into the video review:

otterboxdefenderserieshtchd2jThe OtterBox Defender Series for HTC® HD2™ (International Version ONLY) is part of our toughest line of cases. A screen protector covers your 4.3″ display to keep it shiny and new, while a tailor-fit polycarbonate shell snaps directly over your device. Wrap this all in some mighty silicone (for shock absorption), and you truly have a top-quality case. Never worry about dropping your phone again!

  1. hmmmm… now the big question. Do I stick with the Commuter series, or pony up for the Defender?

  3. I like the reviews you offered of the HTC and other phones, but my screen broke while in a case. I just came across the sharkeye case for my iPhone 4, and they look to have something that will actually cover the screen. Are you going to do a review of this? It was on sharkeye.com Have you reviewed the case for the 3 phone?
